Monit no longer reporting swap usage after Solaris patching

Subject: Monit no longer reporting swap usage after Solaris patching
Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2016 07:04:29 +0000



We have several Solaris servers running Monit which have recently been patched, and since patching they have stopped reporting swap usage.


Examples are a server which has been patched from Solaris 11.3 SRU 4.5.0 to SRU 12.4.0, and another that has been patched from Solaris 10 9/10 kernel patch 150400-32 to 150400-41.


The error coming out of the logs is:


[BST Oct 18 11:42:55] error    : system statistic error -- getvmusage failed

[BST Oct 18 11:42:55] error    : 'servername' statistic error -- memory usage gathering failed


I’ve upgraded Monit to version 5.19.0 but this hasn’t helped.


Has anyone come across this before?


How does Monit gather swap usage? Using vmstat to get this information on the servers works fine.


Any help would be much appreciated.
